EMC Elect 2013 – A Tremendous Thank You!

EMC Elect 2013 – A Tremendous Thank You!

A while back there was a buzz on Twitter about the EMC Elect program.  I didn’t know what it was, so I reached out to Matthew Brender to find out more. If you are familiar with the VMware vExpert program, EMC Elect is a very similar program.

I remember standing in line to see Star Wars on opening day back in 1977.  I never knew what a profound impact the movie and subsequent sequels and prequels would have on life. As a somewhat geeky IT guy, I have heard references to the movie in casual conversation, seen references in email, and so on.  I recently purchased a GPS, and noticed that there are Yoda voices that can be loaded to give the “being directed by the force”…
